Serious Jest:  (Free View)  This film’s plot is unique, kind of ludicrous, and much more fun than its synopsis sounds.  I like when the setting of a movie almost becomes a character in itself, and  New York City is a living, breathing part of this flick.  The characters are interesting, different, and well-acted.  There are some funny moments (and most of them are dark comedy), but no gut-busters that I can think of.  I can’t quite call this one a must-see, but it is time well-spent if you’ve got some time to kill.
